ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS, October 21 – November 13, 2016, at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, 7 South Calvert Street at Redwood Street, two blocks from the Inner Harbor.
Maxwell Anderson’s riveting play rips the cover off an historic scandal. Anne of the Thousand Days chronicles King Henry VIII’s pursuit of the bewitching young Anne Boleyn. The affair betrays his Queen and rends his country. Written in 1948, the play is lyrical, frank, and boldly fascinated with Anne’s character and point of view. Our Anne is Lizzi Albert, a CSC Associate Artistic Director and Resident Acting Company member who recently appeared with us in Wild Oats, The Importance of Being Earnest, and Uncle Vanya. Ron Heneghan, a Resident Acting Company member and our Director of Community Engagement, who most recently appeared in Much Ado About Nothing, will play the King. (Photo by Teresa Castracane.)
